A FATHER and son farming team from Stainburn are celebrating continued success at market.
Commercial dairy farmers Tony and James Swires, from Town End Farm, won another Reserve Championship at Skipton Auction Mart's opening May Craven Dairy Auction show on Monday, May 8.
They also achieved top-price success with their second prize, newly calven 29-litre heifer, by the Cogent sire Goldfarm, out of a home-bred cow.
Eighteen days-calved, she sold for a price-topping £1,850 to Queensbury’s Richard Sutcliffe, with a second Swires heifer reaching £1,680 when knocked down to Fred and Mike Longster in Fellbeck, Harrogate.
The Swires' achievements follow on from their success at the opening, March show where they came away with a Champion and Reserve double win.
